DENVER (AP) - Ian Stewart hit two home runs, including a two-out, go-ahead grand slam in the seventh inning, and the Colorado Rockies rallied past the San Diego Padres 10-8 on Friday
night for their fifth straight win.
Stewart's third career slam and fourth multihomer game gave him a career-best six RBIs and helped the second-place Rockies pull within two games of the NL West-leading Padres.
Continuing an offensive roll that has seen them generate at least 11 hits in eight consecutive games, the Rockies also got a two-run homer from Carlos Gonzalez.
Reliever Luke Gregerson (2-5) gave up the grand slam that gave the Rockies the lead.
Matt Belisle (4-3) allowed one run and one hit in the seventh for the victory. Huston Street pitched the ninth for his fourth save.
